Impressionism, Paperback

Impressionism Paperback

Part of the Colour Library series



The Impressionists developed one of the most innovative movements in the history of Western art. Their revolutionary ideas about light and colour, expression, realism, the aim of painting and the role of the artist, all laid the foundations of modern art. Although ridiculed at first by the art establishment in Europe, Impressionism became one of the most celebrated and popular of art styles, and artists such as Monet, Manet, Pissaro and Renoir have achieved enduring acclaim.

Critic Philip Cooper has chosen illustrations to show the diversity of and connections between Impressionist paintings, and has written detailed commentary on each colour plate.
